Bow Top Railings | Perimeter Railing Solutions | Zaun Fencing Ltd

02. Bowtop Urban Railing

Zaun’s range of Bow Top railings provide a decorative and secure perimeter, ideal for use as a boundary fence in housing estates, parks and other commercial properties. In addition, bow Top fencing can be used in a wide variety of different site locations.

Bowtop Urban is designed with a 150mm bow at the top of the panels to provide an attractive bow style top (for ROSPA compliant variation, see Bowtop Play). With available heights, Zaun’s range of Bowtop fencing is available from stock.

Slotted cleats on the Bow Top Urban panels allow this fence to be installed either on the flat or stepped as desired. Mid panel feet support the panel to prevent sagging.

Each bow top railing perimeter fencing system is designed and manufactured in Wolverhampton and available in bespoke sizes to suit customer requirements. Our manufacturing capacity enables us to manufacture railings to any height or width required on-site. Zaun can even create railings with inclines to provide a consistent perimeter height.

Bespoke curved bow top railing panels also available to provide your perimeter with a different, more aesthetic style of the corner.

Powder-coated and available in almost any RAL colour to suit customer requirements. Gates and other additional items are also available to complete the perimeter.


Hot-dip galvanised to ISO1461 & optional polyester powder coated, after stringent cleaning & treatment to give a well-adhered coating with a minimum of 60 microns.

All Zaun posts/panels/gates and painted auxiliary components (for example, clamp-bars, slide bolts etc.) benefit from a protective zinc layer and electrostatically applied polyester powder coating to BS1722 p16. Care is taken with pre-treatment to ensure sound adhesion between the zinc and paint layers. In a UK C1 environment, as defined in ISO 12944 p2, this should ensure a useful life expectancy of the fence of at least 15-20 years. Life expectancy in all environments can be extended by maintaining the fencing with regular washing. Useful life will be reduced if the fencing is damaged. Any coating damage should be repaired to reduce the effect on useful life.

Enhanced painting systems such as marine coatings are also available for improved life expectancy in C2-C5M environments.
